    Web links in Powerpoint (Explorer 5.0)

    I have inserted Web links into a Powerpoint presentation, but when I click on the link, the page opens beneath the PP slide. The only way to view the page is to close the presentation and minimize PP. How do I get the Web page to always open on top of the PP presentation?

    You didn't list the PP version, but I just tested in 2000 and it worked the way you want it to; IE opening on top.

    Are you using the "Insert-->Hyperlink" function?

    I am using PP 2000 and Explorer 5.0. I insert the link by right-clicking on an object and going to Action Settings to insert the link. I have been able to get the Web site to come up on top on some machines in my lab, but not on others.

    You might try manually sizing the IE window to almost full screen. Then close it. That is supposed to save the size settings of the IE window, and then it will remember to re-open to that size.
